NX11 - Customize

When you go into Customize, in the Commands tab, the first thing on display is a list of categories that can be expanded. Is it possible to set up a new category that will be available to everyone who works here automatically?

Currently when someone wants to add a new button I make, they need to expand the Classic Toolbars category and scroll down until they find our toolbars. I want to change over and have our own category at the top level. It would likely fall right between Classic Toolbars and Menu, making it as simple as possible for people to remember where to go to find buttons.

RE: NX11 - Customize

I'm not sure about adding a new top level category in the customize dialog; I think those values are hard coded in NX and are only there to help categorize the available commands. However, with some menu script, you can create your own tabs, groups, galleries, menu items, etc. and make them available to all users. For example, I have created a "company" tab and placed it in a common network drive. It shows up with some custom commands to all the users when they start NX. It also shows up in the "all tabs" category of the customize dialog.
